florida governor jeb bush argues that the nation's immigration policy should be overhauled to reflect our current economic needs, but also should be b clear enough to enforce properly. this is a little under an hour. [applause] >> now, our love whered president finish beloved president ronald reagan passed away almost ten years ago. but as many in this audience know, it seems nearly impossible to follow political news without hearing some reference to our 40th president. his memory, his name and, fortunately, his legacy seem to be ubiquitous as our country grapples with the challenges of our time. for many years, probably starting with the day after president reagan left office in 1989, there's been a famous question often asked when this is a particularly vexing problem facing our country. you've likely heard it before. we, the questioners often ask, well, what would reagan do? it's a good question to ask, because while times and technology and many faces have changed since president reagan was in office, some important fundamentals, those that speak to who we are as americans, have not.
for 16 years. we are going to make george bush the president of the republicans now for quite a while, and we will continue that. we really only have 1 1/2 political parties in the country now. there is a misreading of the republican party in terms of what the problems were. the fact of the matter is republican party is the dominant political party from 1978 until the summer of 2005, but the party ran out of gas in the summer of 2005, the effects of the war, katrina, where people would say, what is wrong with the republicans? they have had seven or eight years now where republicans are roaming around in terms of their future, and they are not closer now than they were then. political parties cannot fix the problem of a party, but they have to avoid becoming a liability. the job of the political party is to make a flat playing field, so the future of either party will determine who the nominee is and the next president is. until republicans take the white house back, they will be defined as a congressional party, the tea party, great for us, and whoever is the craziest person gets on t
on the facebook, we see this picture all the time now of president bush, like you just showed, next to bradley manning. the question is bradley manning is forgotten and locked up somewhere, whereas bush who started the war is walking around free. what is the press doing about that? >> well, the press is covering the trial of bradley manning. and you are right. bradley manning remains in custody. the trial is under way, and the trial is getting a lot of press coverage. >> when you first started covering the white house in the reagan era, cbs news and the evening news dominated where people got their news and information. we were talking earlier about social media. it changed over the years. has it changed the way you do your job? >> i don't think so. we still try to cover the news on a daily basis for both morning and evening news cycles. we doo, however -- we do, however, make use of social news media. it has changed it in that respect. we don't hold back anymore. in those days, 1981, when i started covering the white house, we saved our best material for the evening news. we can't do that any
of cultivating the patience to see burning bushes. the idea being that if moses had been called from god and the burning bush today, he would have just walked right by it because his cell phone would have rang. so one of the things that we work on a lot out here is just reminding people to just slow down and just be fully present noticing this amazing environment. our seder has most of the elements of a traditional seder but, ironically, we've taken the "seder," which means "order," out of the seder. we hike a mile and a half up to the seder, we do some teachings along the way. and then we have the first part of the seder underneath the arch. >> on all other nights, we eat leavened bread or matzah. why on this night only matzah? >> one of the practices that we do that's very unusual, is we read the story of the exodus directly from the scroll, from the torah scroll. we're trying to take this spiritually rich experience that people have out here and ignite their judaism. >>as we look back and hold on to the tradition, the story, that we come from, it's also our responsibility to continue
from those on the ground. the united states can not do it from the outside. george bush tried unsuccessfully. every president has tried and all failed because of the participants. >> what has changed? the settlements continue, but it is no long number one on presidt obama's agenda. >> the president has acknowledged the mistake early on, but let's be frank, the relationship has changed. netanyahu embraced, endorsed and basically campaigned for mitt romney, who did not carry florida, which was supposed to be the cornerstone of the campaign strategy. barack obama did get reelected and made a case that the two- state solution was imperative for israel's values, that we do not have people that will be stopped at every checkpoint and cannot move freely in their homeland. making an appeal to jewish values and traditions. i thought it was great. >> it is pushing on an open door. the israelis have offered peace. they offered peace in 1967, at camp david in 2000 and in 2008. the point is not the settlemen s , and that is the reason it is important what obama said. he essentially said it

george w. bush. he won in 2004. it came down to ohio which had a gay marriage ban on the ballot. the day after the election, senator dianne feinstein said it was too much. people were not ready for it. >> i get it. i get it. now with that, the dust settled and they did as they do with the exit polls. they analyze. there were ten issues. social issues was number five behind other issues. interestingly, it broke both ways. enthusiastic for bush and enthusiastic for kerry. >> scott: fast forward to 2007 and 2008. senator barack obama runs for president and comes to san francisco to raise money. word was he did not want to be photographed with you. was that true? >> willie brown and myself were doing the fund-raisers for him. one at a restaurant. he had strong opinions. a lot of folks had strong opinions. >> scott: was he worried? >> everyone was worried. i had that brief moment where the new person and the rising star and i was going to go to boston during the convention and speak. all of a sudden, calling up and i said i get it. all these folks that were surrounding me, moved aside and to
this column. in terms of republican politics, and speak for that if you can, that they know that george w bush is basically identified completely with the iraq war. is the republican party that can speak for it, are they basically war averse now? >> i think they would hesitate to say, i'm a spokesperson for the republican party, but, yeah, i heard you say wariness. i think that's the better term. chris: wary rather than weary. >> wary rather than weary, republicans and people in had general are in favor of taking the steps that are essential, the quick strike. chris: are there such things that -- >> i was told that this was going to be a three-week exercise and here we are 10 years later talking about the anniversary. the republicans have to be extremely careful. i thought peggy's article was fantastic. i wish i had written it. she made the point that the enterias are squander -- republicans have squandered trust. the war in iraq did damage the republican party for the longer term i think. chris: you interviewed ahmadinejad last september before the last presidential. he seemed unimpressed wit
of will. simply the will of cheney, bush, and that team. they're going to do it from the first nfc meeting of the bush presidency. it was a matter of how to do it. find me a way to do this. and 9/11 provided that excuse. what's interesting is when you look at the whole chain of events, how many lies there were. this was not a question of them wandering about wmd. it was building a case they knew would would be hollow and figuring once it was successful, once the troops were in there and on the ground, no one would care about the rationale, the just cause, so to speak, for what gets us into iraq. ultimately it shows itself to be a lie that was cynical and one that was preordained and premeditated from the start of the administration. >> you know, i attribute it to something grander than even evidence, my experience with dealing with cheney over the years. brain soup. certain people tend to be doves, hawks, and sadistic about it. cheney strikes me as a guy who wants to rub out his enemies politic politically. any enemy. >> david first. >> what you see in the clip you showed from the showtime
